At this point, the bank will offer you their terms and conditions for the loan. These will include interest rates, term of the loan, indicative loan repayments, and any cash contribution to cover off the legal and other expenses that you’ve incurred so far.

Now that your mortgage is all sorted, the excitement will be building as the day you move into your new home moves closer. You need to start packing your bags and getting ready to move.
